If the recipient of a transferred award successfully completes service in an AmeriCorps program during the transferred award’s use period, can the recipient apply for an extension of time to use it?

Yes. Since the individual is the recipient of a transferred award, s/he has ten years from the date the relative completed the service and earned the award. And because the individual successfully completed a term of service in an AmeriCorps program during those ten years, s/he is eligible to receive an extension for a length of time equivalent to his/her AmeriCorps service.
